"Improper supply goes ahead after IAEA order; UN watchdog mum on queries as to whether it violated EU sanctions.

Authorities in the Netherlands improperly supplied nuclear equipment to the sanctioned Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), the Dutch Economic Affairs Ministry wrote in an October 4 letter obtained by The Jerusalem Post.

According to Economic Affairs Minister Maria van der Hoeven’s letter, 'That shipment contained a helium-leak detector, which was ordered by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in line with its technical cooperation program with Iran, [but] was shipped to a banned recipient (AEOI).'"
